This afternoon we talked about the story of a 9-year-old North Carolina boy who has been the victim of bullying after carrying a "My Little Pony" backpack to school.
In addition to your calls, we heard from a couple of experts. Listen below to Dr. Lisa Kovach, Associate Professor of Educational Psychology at the University of Toledo, and Brittany Mason, a victim of bullying in high school. Brittany overcame her bullying to become Miss Indiana, international model, and actress on shows like CSI, 2 1/2 Men, and The Face.
